CCHS falls to Storm

by: LON AUSTIN/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Erin Crofcheck plays the ball during her win on Tuesday.

The Crook County High School girls golf team is playing some of their best golf of the year as they get ready for district.
   On Monday the Cowgirls finished second in the 12-team South Eugene Invitational at Eugene Country Club. Then on Thursday they finished tied for third in the 10-team Summit Golf Tournament at Broken Top Golf Course.
   "Eugene was tough," said Head Coach Grant Patterson. It's probably the longest course we will play all year. It rained, it hailed and then the sun would come out for a little while and then it rained and hailed again. There were some pretty good teams there so to get second out of that shows what kind of team we have."
   North Medford won the tournament shooting a 371, while the Cowgirls shot a 394 to outdistance third place Roseburg who shot a 402.
   Sarah Crofcheck led Crook County with a 92, while Jobeth Hamon shot a 94.
   On Thursday Bend easily outdistanced the field shooting a 339 while Sisters was second with a 362. Crook County and defending state champion Summit were tied for third, each shooting a 364.
   The Cowgirls were once again led by Crofcheck who shot an 84, while Rachel Kelso singles Kristy Robinson fell 7-5, 6-2 and No. 4 singles player Jesselyn Walter dropped her match 6-3, 6-4.
   The Cowgirls are playing in the Madras Invitational Tournament on Saturday, but they will be shorthanded as several members of the team will be participating in a volleyball tournament over the weekend.
   "We will be missing our No. 1 and 2 doubles teams," said Rodgers. "We are going to use the tournament like a building grounds for some of our younger players."
